A classic Aston Martin which was damaged in a prang with a bollard has been painstakingly restored and is now tipped to sell for £425,000.<br />
<br />
The red 1960 DB4 Series 2 had clocked up 79,000 miles before its original elderly owner crashed it about six years ago.<br />
<br />
He began to repair it but due to failing health had to abandon the project and store the vehicle away in his garage in Harrow, North London.<br />
<br />
The current owner, a retired diplomat, acquired it from him in 2020 and has paid £80,000 to bring it back to its former glory.<br />
<br />
He hired Wren Classics near Shaftesbury, Dorset, who cut everything off from the bulkhead forward and remade it, putting in new parts where old ones could not be salvaged.
